Overview

Americans Have Always Been Inextricably Bound to the Land: It Has Shaped Our History, our ideas, and our art. The beautiful confines of Utah's Logan Canyon serve as a microcosm for exploring these beliefs. In vignettes both poignant and amusing-on subjects as diverse as bank robbers and bull snakes-married with brilliant images of the landscape, author Michael Sweeney takes us on an unforgettable tour through this unspoiled canyon. Through the characters he meets-a botanist, whitewater kayakers, beekeepers, snowboarders, a sheep farmer, a wildlife biologist, budding snowmobile designers, and more-we begin to understand the depth of our relationship with the land and our need for such places as Logan Canyon. The trip from Logan through Spring Hollow, China Cave, Twin Creek, and Franklin Basin to Bear Lake is a journey not soon forgotten.
